Some news you can sink your teeth into: BBC America revealed exclusively to Entertainment Weekly that the third season of the original British Being Human will premiere on Saturday, February 19. “A third season is a unique opportunity because it allows you to take all the best bits of season one and season two,” creator Toby Whithouse teases. “What we took from season one is the domestic element and very strong stories of the week with very strong guest characters. Season two had much more of an epic sweep and a breadth of ambition. Season three has allowed us to combine all those things.”

As you may know, an American remake of Being Human premiered on Syfy last week (January 17). It’s fabulous news that new fans may now get a chance to sample the sizzling original.

His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
